With time, Bollywood stars have learnt to accept and embrace failure. Top-league actors have made peace with the fact that clashes for release dates between movies have now become commonplace and that they will have to take a chance with it.
Hrithik Roshan's "Mohenjo Daro" has collected Rs. 51.18 crore net at the Indian box office in its opening week, whereas Akshay Kumar's "Rustom" has raked in Rs. 90 crore net at the domestic circuit within seven days of release.
Akshay is a happy man and has reasons to celebrate. He took to Twitter to share a special video, in which he is seen hula-hooping while thanking the stars who promoted "Rustom" on social media. Salman Khan, Varun Dhawan, Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt and Sonam Kapoor are some who urged fans to watch the crime-thriller.
Akshay: "Now it's my turn,cant Thank You'll enough 4 all the Love 4 Rustom!There's a lot of Love inside this Hoop! #Shukriya."
Hrithik joined the celebrations and cheered for Akshay, tweeting: "Good to see you so happy man! Enjoying your success is also a talent! Happy is a practice. Bravo:)"
It's interesting to see huge stars like them treating success and failure in the most sorted and mature manner. Akshay, when asked about what he thought about the clash and its aftermath, said he will always remain friends with Hrithik and the box office performances will not change the rapport they share.
On the work front, Hrithik has Sanjay Gupta's "Kaabil" lined up, which is gearing up for a box office battle with Shah Rukh Khan's "Raees." Akshay has portions of "Jolly LLB 2" and "2.0" to wrap up, after which he will take up "Namastey England" and Neeraj Pandey's "Crack."
